Peter retired from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans after 35 years of service as a fisheries biologist and manager. During that time, he served for several years on Boards supporting local sport organizations (e.g., Vancouver Youth Soccer Association) and schools. For his retirement he volunteers at the Museum of Anthropology and Westside Seniors Hub, a past-Director at the Dunbar Community Centre, referee’s youth soccer on the weekends, plays lots of pickleball, and enjoys a number of other hobbies.
Peter’s family moved to the Dunbar area in 1962, and throughout that time he watched the services, growth and opportunities change over the years. His mother lived in their home for over 50 years, well in to her 90’s. This provided him with the opportunity to help her with the challenges of aging, living on her own, and looking for services to maintain her needs.
“The Westside Seniors Hub has provided me with an opportunity to work with others in finding ways for seniors and their caregivers to fulfill their lives as best they can.”
